TV host Joey Muthengi has spoken out and clarified the ongoing stories of her reported whirlwind romance with football star McDonald Mariga.
Speaking to Massawe Japanni, she said;
“This story with Mariga has gotten out of control. The media started it, they perpetuated it and now they have ended it.”
She is quoted in an interview saying:
“I don’t know where this (relationship) will take us. Ask Mariga. But we will see what becomes of it. Unfortunately, I just felt that what I was going to do with life did not coincide with what Citizen TV had for me. Besides, I had a good time there and I will miss everyone, especially my fans.”
Joey explained that she was misquoted, she said:
“After I was asked, what kind of guy Mariga is, The words I used were, ‘he is a nice guy, he is cool’. and That is it. There is no reason to read in between the lines.”
She continued that she wants to clear the air further that she is not moving to Milan, Italy but rather she will be there for “work”.
“Actually I’m not dating.”
Asked is she plans to get married, Joey responded with a hard cold, “No!”
“That has never been something I wanted to do. Never ever. You can even ask my mother. Marriage is not for everyone. I don’t feel like it is a must. If it is not helping me wachana nayo.”
She went ahead to talk about past relationships saying, “I have been hurt a lot. I have chosen badly I cannot blame them, I love bad boys and I love hard. Now I Just keep my distance. I think that has also contributed to why I don’t ever want to get married.”
“He is married to his mixed-race wife in Italy and they have a daughter, Kenisha, together she is very private they are planning on getting married in Spain in summer 2019,” a source told kiss100.co.ke.
Adding, “and Victor Wanyama is the best man.”
Summer in Italy begins on Friday, 21 June and ends on Monday, 23 September. So if the bride and groom-to-be are to choose a date, it will fall between those four months.
Joey categorically stated:
“There is now wedding, there is no relationship with Mariga. [The chemistry we had on the Betin adverts were] because we are both chill people, it was easy.”
